November 14, 2011 -How does your work excite and inspire you? How does your life inspire you? How does the work that you do inspire and enrich the life that you lead? If your life and work seem disconnected in some way, then you are most likely feeling torn between the two and not all that inspired or excited. The key to loving what you do for a living and enjoying your life is being engaged in both in a way that allows them to feed, nourish and support the other on a continual basis.
Take an MM&I Moment to list how your work and life are in conflict. List why you feel torn between your work and your life. List what would inspire you and thrill you in both. Then take a look at these lists and identify one action you can take to help your work or life flow more easily for you and bring some of the excitement and enjoyment back in both areas. Sometimes it is simply to take a break. Sometimes it is to do something you have never done or tried before. But whatever it is, make it something that will inspire you to make actions like the one you are about to take a part of your everyday experience. Then you cannot help but feel excited and inspired once again.
